Fair Weather Missile Shield

By Cernig

Scout Finch at DKos says it all:
The US Navy announced that due to bad weather, it will postpone the attempt to shoot down the impaired satellite until tomorrow at the earliest. Our zillion dollar "star wars" technology is clearly capable of stopping incoming missiles so long as: they come one at a time, are the size of a school bus, travel in orbits that have been calculated for months, don't deploy any decoys, and the weather is clear.

But more seriously, watch for the neocon crowd afterwards - they're going to argue how much easier it would have been if America had interceptors already in space just like Saint Ronnie wanted - and nevermind all that stuff about treaties and new arms races.
